      I'm glad I had extra time today because once I got started (again) on this book, I could not put it down. This book embodies every thing I love about the genre. It's fairly well written. The characters (though they're always extremely good-looking but that comes with the territory) are just flawed enough to make them believable and sympathetic. The plot unfolds at a reasonable yet gripping pace.It took me a little while to get into this one, not sure why but once I was in, I was hooked. I loved [...]

      I really enjoyed this book. I liked that the characters actually came to know each other and understand each other, while still in an intersting plot. The references to their belief in God were not over the top as they are in some books, but seemed believable.Heather is asked by her father to help Duncan learn how to be a noble so that he can help rescue the Queen. But things don't go exactly as planned.

    3. Kaziar Rawls on said:

      Kathleen Morgan is a brilliant author. I absolutely fell in love with this book! She makes you feel everything that both characters were experiencing and made it especially easy for me to relate to the female main character. I definitely recommend this to anybody! (Guys: It is a romance, but the action is also incredible!)

      This book just automatically cathes your attention! I mean look at the cover! She's gorgeos, he's even more gorgeos, The castle and hills, the title. And I have to admit, thats why I originally bought it from my favorite book store. I know, I know, dont judge a book by its cover. But I have to say,I think the story far surpasses the cover! Heather Gordon is a woman of sixteenth-century nobility, accostemed to the finer things in life. And yet, she's always longed for something more fullfilling t [...]

    5. Betty Strohecker on said:

      This is a captivating book based upon an attempt to free Mary, Queen of Scots, from captivity in Lochleven Castle. Mary has been forced to abdicate in favor of her young son, and her half-brother now rules as regent. Powerful lords have moved the country to Protestantism, but Mary's Catholic supporters seek to restore her to the throne. The time is January, 1568, and noblewoman, Heather Gordon is enlisted by her father to travel to the Highlands to seek the help of the only man who can get into [...]

      Anyone who has read my previous reviews of Kathleen Morgan's work, knows that I love her writing style. This book is no exception in drawing you into the story and giving one a bird's eye view of each character. The plot is well-planned and carries through as one might expect, unfolding and revealing the motivations of each character. This isn't the type of book where you will be surprised by hidden twists and turns. The key highlight of betrayal is carefully woven through the story and builds f [...]

      Super good! More of a 4.5 stars rating then 4! :) Loved the setting--the Scottish Highlands (who wouldn't love that!) and the Scottish brogue. The story was really amazingfull of adventure, love, a harrowing rescue plot, the class divide, family secretsI could go on! The theme of love--whether it is love lost, love never given, the dangers of love, the thrills of love, the fulfillment of love, the true love we receive through our Savior--runs through the entire book and creates a fulfilling endi [...]

      I love the setting of the book--the Scottish Highlands--and the fact that the plot was somewhat inspired by a historical event--the attempted rescue of Mary, Queen of the Scots.I enjoyed the read though, at times, the plot was very predictable. The romance between the two main characters, Heather and Duncan, was a mixture of sweetness and annoyance at different times throughout the book (with an over-protective mother to boot).In the end, it is a decent story but it seems to lack spiritual subst [...]

      Mary, Queen of Scots, needs to be rescued. Heather Gordon's father has a plan that involved her. She is to train Duncan MacKenzie, a Highlander that is the unknown twin of Colin Stewart. She is ready to serve her queen, but will she risk living away from her family and privileges lifestyle?I will thank you, Lord, in front o fall the people. I will sing your praises among the nations. For your unfailing love is as high as the heavens. ~ Psalm 57: 9-10Time Period: 1568Location: ScotlandReviewed fr [...]

    10. Highland-dreamer on said:

      As much as I love highland novels, I have to say this one disappointed. I recommended Kathleen Morgan to my friends so we could read this one and discuss it, based upon the Brides of Culdee Creek series. Since that series had a lot of good topics of discussion, I thought this one would have some as well. I have to say there wasn't a whole lot of substance with this book. He lusts after her, and then she lusts after him I didn't see a strong Christian element in this book, and expected something [...]

    11. Brooke on said:

      When I went to review her other book I just read I realized I read this book a couple months ago. This is another book set in Scotland (not part of a series like Child of the Mist is) and has an intersting plot line. It is based on actual events that took place in trying to free Mary Queen of Scotts but uses fictional characters. I enjoyed reading this book and its characters travels. I would say if I had the option I would at least give this a 3.5. Its not quite a four but way better than a thr [...]

    12. Sarah on said:

      Not overly impressed really. Didn't find the characters as dimensional as I would have liked, though I love the setting of Scotland. Also definitely seemed a little too, ah, hormonal? The physical attraction between Duncan and Heather was dwelt on a little too heavily for me,or at least in too much detail, for me to be really comfortable with this book. I felt like a little more depth and a little less description of Duncan's chest hair would have been nice. :)

    13. Susan on said:

      This was a nice christian romance but a bit on the preachy side for me. Also, the couple spent alot of time fighting with each other. Of course you love our hero and are understanding (a little) of the lass. It's not as good as her other highland series she did but still ok. I would've given it a 4 star if it hadn't been for all the argueing and preaching.

    14. Amy Riccio on said:

      Hum. The setting was my favorite, but I think the plot and storyline was too big for the length of the book. A lot of things seemed to happen too fast for my liking. I wish Kathleen would have made the book longer and helped to tell the storyline more seamlessly by allotting more time and detail to parts of it.

    15. Jayci Reeder on said:

      I wish the story had more substance and description. Very basic writing, but interesting story line. The relationship was dang frustrating though - full of self-doubt and arguing. I wanted to shake their shoulders and say, "drop it! get over it!"

    16. Jenelle on said:

      I liked this book-it was a cute romance novel-but nothing distasteful. What I liked about it is that some of the plot actually was part of history-I thought that was neat. Of course Duncan was very appealing and this book was written for women!

    17. Shanda on said:

      Kathleen Morgan's more recent books are like "comfort food" to me. They don't expect much of me and I can relax, put my feet up and know that I'm going to be reading a good romance with some nice chemistry without anything "extra." There's always a message of faith and God as well.

    18. Michele on said:

      It was hard in the beginning because of the Scottish dialect (at least I think it was Scottish ("och, ye, mither", etc.). After I was able to get through that, it became quite enjoyable and kept me interested throughout. I look forward to reading more of her books.

    19. Wendy on said:

      The writing style was excellent and it is a historical period that I am generally interested in-- however, I just could not get into it now. Maybe just not in the mood-- I don't know :( Will try again at some point.

    20. Elizabeth on said:

      I started reading this book because I had to, not because I wanted to. By the time I was done I was so glad that I had read it. It's not one that I would pick for myself to read but it was definitely something worth my time. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good read

    21. Tausha on said:

      3.5 would actually be the rating I give this one. I liked it. This was a great read I just didn't fall in love with it. Glad I read it but probably won't read it again. I am interested in reading more from this author.

    22. Michelle on said:

      Decent read, but novels from this time period always seem to have the same basic plot. I enjoyed it okay, though.

    23. Court on said:

      I didn't like this as much as her other books, but i thought it still deserved four stars. This book was good, but it wasn't great.

    24. Phyllis C on said:

      Good story for the most part, different. For me there was too much sex in one part, and my recommendation would be embarrassing.

    25. Sheri on said:

      10% storyline, 90% talking about how hott they think each other are. Gag.

    26. Carman on said:

      Very good! I love this book. Well, I've loved everything I've read by Morgan, so it makes sense that I would love this to. You should read her books.
